Located in the Ala Moana Shopping Center, this 6,300 SF redesign resulted in an uncomplicated, yet stylish elegance for the restaurant, whose goal is to provide excellent Italian cuisine at a moderate price.

Our primary design goal was to make the guest experience a "timeless" one by emphasizing modern Italian simplicity while using a full range of color. This also provided a feeling of light and brightness to a previously dark interior. The main dining room is separated into four distinct areas, to maintain a sense of intimacy while allowing for unique and varied dining experiences within one restaurant. The reuse of mechanical fan coil units, floor drains and exhaust ducts minimized the construction cost.
